Café Duke & Wine Bar reopening

We're delighted to reopen Café Duke every weekday between 8am and 12pm for breakfast - in line with government restrictions being lifted.

We've also used the downtime to improve our services in Café Duke and will now be offering:

  • An earlier opening time of 8am
  • A breakfast menu including bacon and sausage sandwiches
  • Hot drinks with menu pricing benchmarked against local cafés to ensure competitive pricing

Our Wine Bar will be opening from 12pm - 8pm every week day where you can enjoy drinks or a delicious lunch from our new lounge menu.

We look forward to welcoming you back into 116 Pall Mall!

We work closely with our award-winning caterer, Benugo, to develop locally sourced seasonal dishes.

Benugo runs restaurants at a host of world-famous landmarks, including the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, the English National Opera and the Natural History Museum.

The menu in both of the building’s member lounges – the Directors’ Room, and the Carlton Room – has been revamped: breakfast now features dishes such as British Cumberland sausage as well as spicy smashed avocado with eggs, tomato and sourdough bread.

Sandwich and salad offerings include Benugo bestsellers such as tuna niçoise with cherry tomatoes and olives.

Calling all Food & Drink lovers!

You can now enjoy our social events at 116 Pall Mall throughout the year.

You can choose from wine tasting, healthy juice tasting, coffee sampling and even a spectacular evening pageant of music and military precision drill, including horses, cannons and fireworks. There is something for everyone!

And if you’re a coffee connoisseur, you’ll taste the difference too. Benugo is famous for its coffee credentials, having picked up two London Lifestyle Awards for London’s Coffee Shop of the Year.

This espresso culture is reflected in the new barista-brewed drinks, which include flat whites, macchiatos and soft brew.

Benugo’s coffee has an 85/15 split between Arabica and Robusta beans, and is sourced from Brazil, Nicaragua, Peru, Colombia and Vietnam – flavours range from tropical sweetness to red berry.

The fruit and vegetables in Benugo’s catering outlets are organically sourced, coming from family-run business Watts Farm in Kent. All bread, pastries and cakes are freshly baked that day in Benugo’s Bermondsey bakery and include the likes of salted caramel millionaire’s shortbread and warm scones with Cornish clotted cream.

Private Hire

If you are looking to hire a unique venue to hold a dinner, networking event or drinks reception, Cafe Duke's could provide you with the ideal setting. This unique venue was used as the filming location for the blockbuster Batman movie The Dark Knight and the TV drama Downton Abbey.
